Lovely Liquid Satin

Hello! We just listed a gorgeous yellow liquid satin 1940s gown that was worn in a wedding by the matron of honor, complete with the matching gloves and bustle. In doing research on it we came across some perfectly lovely gowns as well and thought you'd like to see them.

The utterly fantabulous designer Fred Perlberg did some fantastic variations of the liquid satin (also known as slipper satin) evening gown, and we found a few at Alley Cats Vintage:

Alley Cats also has another gown, done in the Perlberg style;
which is quite reminiscent of ours, from Purse Diva Vintage;

These gowns are highly sought after and actually pretty hard to find, we understand. They are done in a lovely heavy satin that has such a wonderful feel. We think 1940s slipper satin is such a unique and interesting fabric, as well as neat pieces of fashion history, that we just wanted to share.
